[movies]Hubble Finds Cloudy, Cold Weather Conditions for Mars-Bound Spacecraft - *Credit:* P. James (University of Toledo), T. Clancy (STScI), S. Lee (University of Colorado), and NASA [ http://www.nasa.gov/ ]
*Description*:> These views from above the Martian pole were assembled from mosaics of three sets of images and projected to appear as if from above. This series captures the seasonal retreat of the polar cap from its greatest extent of the year (October, 1996) at 60 degrees N latitude through (January, 1997) early Spring, to (March, 1997) early summer on Mars.

[movies]Hubble Reveals Surface of Pluto for First Time - *Credit:* Alan Stern (Southwest Research Institute), Marc Buie (Lowell Observatory), NASA [ http://www.nasa.gov/ ] and ESA [ http://spacetelescope.org/ ]
*Description*: The never-before-seen surface of the distant planet Pluto is resolved in these NASA Hubble Space Telescope pictures, taken with the European Space Agency's (ESA) Faint Object Camera (FOC) aboard Hubble. Discovered in 1930, Pluto has always appeared as nothing more than a dot of light in even the largest earth-based telescopes because Pluto's disk is much smaller than can be resolved from beneath the Earth's turbulent atmosphere...

[movies]Saturn's Auroras Defy Scientists' Expectations - *Credit:* NASA [ http://www.nasa.gov/ ], ESA [ http://www.spacetelescope.org/ ], J. Clarke (Boston Univ.) and G. Bacon (STScI [ http://www.stsci.edu/ ]) Selected still images from this video: (click to enlarge): [ http://hubblesite.org/newscenter/archive/releases/2005/06/video/c/still/1/ ] [ http://hubblesite.org/newscenter/archive/releases/2005/06/video/c/still/2/ ] [ http://hubblesite.org/newscenter/archive/releases/2005/06/video/c/still/3/ ]
*Description*:> NASA's Hubble Space Telescope Imaging Spectrograph took a series of snapshots of Saturn's aurora dancing in the sky. The ultraviolet images were taken on Jan. 8, 10, 12, 14, 16, 18, 20, 21, 23, 24, 26, 28 and 30, 2004. This dissolve squence shows the aurora appearing as a ring of light circling the planet's polar ring. Collisions with atoms and molecules make the gases in the planet's atmosphere glow in visible, ultraviolet, and infrared light...

[movies]A Closer Encounter with Mars - *Photo Credit:* Steve Lee (University of Colorado), Jim Bell (Cornell University), Mike Wolff (Space Science Institute), and NASA [ http://www.nasa.gov/ ].
*Description*: Taking advantage of Mars's closest approach to Earth in eight years, astronomers using NASA's Hubble Space Telescope have taken the space-based observatory's sharpest views yet of the Red Planet. NASA is releasing these images to commemorate the second anniversary of the Mars Pathfinder landing. The lander and its rover, Sojourner, touched down on the Red Planet's rolling hills on July 4, 1997, embarking on an historic three-month mission to gather information on the planet's atmo...
